How to play Killer on a Dartboard

0
Your rating: None
There are many different games you can play on a Dartboard; the standard 501 game, the shorter 301 game, a game of 1-10 doubles, the list is quite endless. Arguably one of the most entertaining games is Killer. This game can be played by 2 people all the way up to 20. The best number of players is around 5-6.
What you'll need: 
A Dartboard
Darts
A blackboard
Chalk
1: 
Each player takes turn to choose their number. A player has to throw 1 single dart using their non throwing arm. Once each player has their number, write it down next to their name on the left-hand side of the blackboard. Each player must have a different number. Each number has to be single. If you hit triple 15, your number is still 15. The bull’s eye and the 25 ring do not count.
2: 
The order of the names on the blackboard will determine the order of play. Player 1 will throw 3 darts (with their normal arm) attempting to hit their own number. They will score a single point (or life) for a single hit, 2 lives if they hit their numbers double and 3 if they hit their numbers treble. After each player's turn, they must mark their score, marking a single vertical line for each life.
3: 
Keep on taking turns to throw. The aim is to get 5 lives. Once you have your 5, you are ‘killing’, this means you can start aiming for opponent’s numbers knocking lives off their score. Once a player's lives run out they are out of the game. You can only aim for others whilst you are killing. E.g. If someone takes a life from you whilst you are killing, you have to hit your own number once before you can carry on killing.
4: 
If you hit your own number whilst you are killing then you must deduct that amount of lives from yourself. The winner is the last person remaining.
Tips: 
It’s always more fun if there’s a prize for the winner
Be careful who you aim for, this is a game of revenge, alliances will be formed
